From a 12oz bottle with a freshness date of 12/7/06, pours a gold color with a copper hue. The three finger head is creamy and stiff, with great retention and lacing.

The clean and slightly sweet aroma is of grain, malt, hops, and a metallic note. The flavor is biscuity, sweet malt, some apple and pear, finishing with subtle hops and corn syrup.

The mouth is medium-bodied and complex. It begins bready and slightly fruit on the front palate, then finshes dry and malty, yet offers a dose of grainy sweetness as well.

Very drinkable, very good. Let it warm up to enjoy the its full spectrum of characteristics. Viva GLBC.
